KTVU Airing School District’s Original Educational Program
As part of its effort to reach all students, the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) is partnering with Fox O&O KTVU San Francisco (DMA 6) to provide an hour-long television episode every weekday especially for preschool-2nd grade students in San Francisco, called SF Loves Learning.
The show on the stations KTVU Plus subchannel will provide access to academic and social emotional learning opportunities from SFUSD and partners for San Francisco’s youngest students, who have disproportionately less access to technology than older students.
Each episode will include an opening, a daily lesson, wiggles & dance, a read aloud, music, mindfulness and a closing segment. The show will be in English with some lessons/segments featuring other languages, including Spanish and Cantonese.
“At SFUSD we have been working with urgency and creativity to find ways to connect and create distance learning opportunities while school buildings are closed,” SFUSD Superintendent Dr. Vincent Matthews said. “We are grateful to KTVU for providing this additional platform for San Francisco public school educators to offer academic and social emotional learning opportunities for San Francisco’s youngest students.”
Mellynda Hartel, SVP-GM of KTVU, said: “Our first priority as a local news station is to serve the community. KTVU is proud of this partnership which enables us to use our news platform to aid SFUSD in their noble efforts to find unique ways to provide access to critical educational materials for all.”
